The completion of the natural gas market liberalization process in Spain, characterized by the ability of consumers to choose their supplier, has set a new framework for action for companies in the industry.
On the one hand, companies engaged in the transportation and distribution of natural gas must face regulatory changes and investments that have an impact on business returns. On the other, gas marketing companies, which traditionally served the markets in their historical areas of distribution, are striving to expand their scope of action, leading to the entry of new competition.
Natural gas logistics management, the subject of study in this document, is one of the functions of gas marketing companies and affects the planning and scheduling of different activities such as the supply of Natural Gas (NG) in gaseous state and Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), regasification, transportation, storage, distribution and delivery to the customer.
This document contains some of the keys to the logistics management function, and examines opportunities for gas marketing companies to act in this area of activity:
After a general analysis of the gas value chain, the document discusses the main characteristics of the Spanish market and those of other reference countries.
